Animal Flow Level 2
Animal Flow® is an innovative new fitness program that combines quadrupedal and ground based movements with elements from various bodyweight training disciplines to create a fun, challenging, multi-planar workout.
By reconnecting to their bodies through movement training, Animal Flow® enthusiasts gain a better understanding of their bodies while enjoying increased mobility, flexibility, stability, power, endurance, skill and neuromuscular communication.
Whether you’re a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor, a coach, or other fitness professional, Animal Flow’s six components have maximal functional translation to client performance at every level.
Combine the elements for a complete, stand-alone workout, or use select components for dynamic warm-up, conditioning drills, or high intensity interval training; integrate themovements into resistance and strength training using circuits or supersets; or focus on the flows in your skills-based practice.
Animal Flow® is designed to fit into your existing training program and will complement and supplement what you already do, giving you another tool in your training arsenal.
